Holiday Pineapple Centerpiece
Last Thanksgiving was a special holiday for my family -- the first time in months we could spend a long weekend together. To make the dinner table extra special, I planned a pair of pineapple centerpieces for family to create while I put the finishing touches on the feast. Later, when the candles were lit and we gathered together for the meal, the arrangements were even more beautiful than I imagined they would be. Best of all, I have a treasured memory of the holiday and our time together. As a traditional symbol of hospitality, the pineapple centerpiece would offer a warm welcome on any occasion.
